Belarus hosted a seminar “Cross-border tourist routes between Lithuania and Belarus”
Last week (from 5th till 7th of October) delegation from ‘Lithuanian association of palaces and mansions’ («Lietuvos pilių ir dvarų asociacija», http://www.dvarai.lt/) visited Belarus. The visit was aimed at getting acquainted with cultural heritage from Grand Duchy of Lithuania (mansions, castles, palaces) and developing cross-border tourist routes between our countries. The event was organized within the project AGORA 2.0 “Heritage tourism for increased BSR identity” supported by the EU within the Baltic Sea Region Program 2007-2013 (http://www.agora2-tourism.net). The project unites 9 countries and 24 partners including Belarusian Association “Country Escape”. The seminar included discussions on the cross-border tourist routes that would unite our heritage sites and present our joint history. In the end the participants came to a conclusion that it would be great to hold an expedition along the river Neman that links Belarus and Lithuania. Such route would demonstrate our heritage and attract attention to this part of the Baltic Sea Region.
